Saturday on Stage and Serenata for June
Saturday on StageÂ presents what I blithely call “Opera and More” every Saturday at 1:30Â Classical 101. The program is preceded byÂ SerenataÂ at 1 p.m. , which centers on the art song. Music for solo voice-usually-with solo piano-usually. As you will see, there’s lots of room to maneuver!
Here is the schedule for both programs for June.
